Idaho History: In 1915, Buffalo Bill came to town and reformers battled sin

William H. Cody, known and admired by the millions worldwide who had seen his Wild West show, “Buffalo Bill,” made his final appearance in Idaho in June of 1915. His show, greatly diminished in size since its heyday in the 19th century, traveled that year with the Sells-Floto Circus. The combined attractions appeared in Lewiston, Moscow, Boise, Twin Falls and Pocatello. Bill died in 1917, but his legend lingers. It is entirely possible that he was seen live by more people in Europe and America than any entertainer who ever lived.
